"mornings on 2" begins right now. well, good morning to you. welcome to "mornings on 2." i'm dave clark. >> i'm tori campbell. it's tuesday, january 1st, first day of 2013. topping our news -- hundreds of thousands of people gathered along san francisco's waterfront at midnight to ring in the new year. but it was a holiday celebration marred by violence. ktvu's alex savidge tells us a 12-year-old boy was among three people who were shot. alex? >> reporter: well, as thousands packed the waterfront last night, someone opened fire here on embarcadero close to pier 2.
7:03am
a total of two people shot here. one of them a 12-year-old boy. he was hit in the foot but is expected to be okay. now, this happened about 11:30 last night, as people were waiting for the fireworks show to begin in san francisco. along with the boy wounded, a man was grazed in the hip by a bullet. san francisco police say both of those shooting victims are being treated for nonlife- threatening injuries. at this point, it's unclear why the shooter began to fire or who their intended target was. just about an hour before that, there was another shooting along the waterfront. this one close to fisherman's wharf, near jefferson and mason. one person shot in the hand. police say that person's injuries request are not life- threatening. a search for the gunman came up empty. i put in a call to the police department's spokesperson about updates. i've not heard back so far. alex savidge, ktvu channel 2

news. 7:02. early this morning, the u.s. senate passed a soil to avoid the fiscal cliff. so the measure now goes to the house of representatives. president obama released a statement praising the senate vote saying -- again, the house of representatives reconvenes at 9:00 this morning our time. coming up at 7:15, even if the house passes the senate bill, the contentious debate will continue in congress with more crucial deadlines in the coming weeks. 7:03. highway 12 in solano county, it has reopened after a head-on collision. four people were killed. this happened about 9:00 last night near the river bridge on highway 12. this is east of rio vista. the chp hasn't given us details about what may have caused the crash or if alcohol may have
7:05am
been involved. and law enforcement agencies were really everywhere during the night, cracking down, looking out for drunk drivers. dui checkpoints were set ulall over the bay area and chp officers were patrolling those highways. yesterday, the chp said the number of dui arrests were down compared to last year. but new numbers for this year's crackdown may be released sometime today. all right. 7:04. we want to check in again with tara. more about the accident in the south bay. >> one in mountain view, the one in the campbell area. 101 northbound at moveit boulevard is the first one -- move fet boulevard is the -- moffitt boulevard. this is a spinout accident. and kest campbell, it's a two- car crash. one lane is blocked. on the san mateo bridge, traffic is moving along, on the right side westbound as you drive to foster city.
7:06am
no problems. at the bay bridge toll plaza, it's clear sailing into san francisco this morning. 7:04. here's steve. thank you, tara. well, a little system, most of you probably missed it. but it gave us cloudy skies a couple of hours ago. now we're starting to see this on the northern edge of it. it's moving through pretty fast. a couple of sprinkles from the city, san mateo coast, peninsula, skyline down the santa cruz mountains. most of it is gone. the low is zipping by. it does not have a lot of moisture with it. but it will usher in very cool air. already freeze hans frost advisories are posted for tomorrow. one low moved into southern california. here comes another one right there. so i mean, it's not much left of it. 30s now. temperatures starting to drop toward the north. 31 getting under clear skies. 30s for many. 7 up in tahoe. 27 in ukiah and redding and very cold air is arriving.
7:07am
so freeze watch in advance of that tonight into tomorrow morning and a frost advisory will take us into tomorrow as well. that frost advisory is heading toward the peninsula and off the coast. i think we're about done with it. it looks like clearing is already taking place to the north. the next system will split and move its energy. that's what's been happening with a lot of these systems. partly cloudy in the morning, mostly sunny, partly cloudy later on today. but a cool, breezy day. i will take those few showers out unless you are watching towards beautiful monterey. that's about it. 50s on the temperatures. low to mid-50s for everyone. the coolest temperatures will be inland. you add that north breeze and that can cut right through you. maybe not bad in the sun. but any shade or breeze, you will definitely notice it. temperatures stay on the cool side. very cool on wednesday. a little system off to the west will give us higher clouds thursday. it's out of here on friday. weekend looks dry and warmer. warmer? what? a little bit, yeah. 7:06.
7:08am
we will told you about the new year's eve violence in san francisco last night. police in sacramento are investigating a deadly shooting near a fireworks show. our reporter mike lori tells us two people were killed three others were hurt. what happened out there, mike? >> reporter: well, dave, sacramento police say they have the shooter in custody. the 22-year-old gunman is in the hospital right now. he too was shot it turns out by an armed sure guard who intervened and actually stopped the deadly shooting before it claims even more lives. we do know that two people are dead and three injured following a shooting this tack place a at a bar in old sacramento. one of those dead is an employee, believed to be a waiter who worked in the restaurant. the incident forced the cancellation of new year's eve celebrations, causing thousands of people to head for home without any fireworks at all. here's what one eyewitness told us about. >> we heard gunshots.
7:09am
the dude came into that hooka place shooting. come back out. ran around the corner and was firing down the sidewalk. some guy with a baby in a stroller, i watched him pick up stroller and throw it with his baby in it. i also saw other parents laying upon their children while this guy was the lunatic out in the street shooting at people. >> reporter: a live look at police who are still on the scene at 2nd and kay streets. the injured include a 30-year- old woman who was taken from the bar and transported to a hospital. the injured include the gunman and the armed security guard. police at this point are not revealing the identities or names of any of the people involved as their investigation continues. reporting live in old sacramento, mike leery, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you, mike. before you go, quick question. i know they canceled the fireworks show. what was the reaction to that? >> reporter: well, people were very disappointed. there were actually two shows
7:10am
in one. the first one was a children's show. that went off without a hitch. they had the fireworks and then the adults were supposed to come in. this incident happened at 9:48. a lot of people were forced to go home. people were disappointed but realized there was an active crime scene involved and wanted to get home. >> thank you, mike. 7:09. pg&e customers will see changes to their bill in the new year. how some of the changes are tied to the deadly pipeline explosion in san bruno. plus -- according to a new ruling if you get hurt on a bumper car or some other ride at an amusement park, you can only blame yourself.
7:11am
7:12am
starting to clear out. we had mostly cloudy skies. now partly cloudy. very cool and breezy coming down from the north.
7:13am
windchill in santa rosa is 26 degrees. bundle up. it will be cool but partly sunny to mostly sunny. 7:11. the u.s. senate passed a last- minute deal overnight to keep the country from going over that fiscal cliff but this is not a done deal yet. ktvu's kyla campbell is in our washington, d.c. newsroom now breaking down -- this is very complicated exactly where we are right now. >> reporter: the u.s. senate pulled an all-nighter to do its part to avoid automatic income tax hikes and deep government spending cuts but the house has yet to approve the measure. senators barbara boxer and dianne feinstein voted with the majority of the senate to extend the current tax rates for households making less than $450,000 a year and individuals making less than $400,000. but all of us will see less in our paychecks this year. that's because the senate measure did not extend the payroll tax holiday, meaning workers will lose out on another 2% of their pay. the senate move does extend federal unemployment benefits
7:14am
for 2 million americans for one year and it puts a freeze on congressional pay just days after president obama said they should get a raise. but much more is on the line in the coming weeks. the senate has put off dealing with government spending cuts for another two months and they need to address the debt ceiling and long-term budget plans. >> it's the debate we'll have next and it's a debate republicans are ready for. >> reporter: and the next debate is in the house. we'll see if they pass the senate deal when they get back to work in less than two hours. live in washington, kyla campbell, ktvu channel 2 news. it is 7:13. some san francisco workers can expect slightly bigger paychecks starting today. that's because the minimum wage just went up in the city. the minimum wage is now $10.5 in san francisco.
7:15am
the state minimum wage in california is $8 an hour. 7:13. pg&e customers, you'll see changes on your bill this month. starting today, electric bills go up about 2%. but gas rates, they are going down, almost 6%. however, the smaller gas prices, they won't last long. next month, pg&e will raise gas rates about 2% to help pay for pipeline safety upgrading. now, this was mandated by sit regulators after the 2010 pipeline explosion in san bruno. well, a new california supreme court ruling says if you get hurt on a roller coaster or some other amusement park ride, don't expect the amusement park to pay for it. the high court ruled that people take a place when they doe side to go on a ride -- decide to go on a ride that could be pretty dangerous. you shouldn't blame the park if you get a minor injury. that decision follows a san jose woman's lawsuit against
7:16am
great america. she sued after breaking her wrist while riding bumper cars. 7:14. pinnacle's national monument could soon be turned into a national park. the site features tower-like rock formations and caves and is located east of highway 101. a bill would turn it into the 59th national park passed the senate and is awaiting the president's signature. barbara boxer and dianne feinstein signed the bill. 7:15. a rough start to the new year at point reyes national seashore where a road is closed. that's cutting off access to a popular beach. a big gap opened up right there on the road yesterday. park officials say there was a culvert under the road that failed. that road closure is affecting access to limatour beach, sky and the point reyes hostile.

7:19am
7:20am
one of the survivers of sunday's tour bus crash in oregon that killed nine people on sunday, he's talking about it now. police say that charter bus with more than 40 passengers lost control on an icy road on interstate 84 in pendleton, oregon. the bus then rolled 200 feet down a mountain canyon. investigators say a lot of the victims were actually thrown out of the bus. this survivor described the chaos. >> screamed and yelled, some mothers screamed to find their son or daughter. >> now, investigators think maybe 49 people were on that

7:23am
-- 30th in the league in field goal percentage. harbaugh said it was not up to his standard. his job is to make field goals and he's not making them. and harbaugh is a pretty quick decision maker. he doesn't let people sit around. >> you see how a field goal can change the whole game. >> yes. 7:22. tara has something free for everyone. >> free parking in san francisco. >> aren't you sweet. >> my gift to you. meters will not be enforced. hope if you need to get out and -- happy new year if you need to get out and about. near thornton avenue, the chp is not saying what this is, perhaps it's a stalled car. in livermore, just wanted to show you 580 westbound. a little slow going coming from the tracy area. up next, a look at 280 at the

7:26am
officials say that yesterday afternoon between 3:00 and 5:00, he parked near the top of mount tamalpais with the intention of hiking down stenson beach. he called 911 saying he was lost and that he was disoriented and injured near a creek which is west near the top of the mountain. it was last night when they lolost contact with him. and this morning it took more than 65 mostly volunteer search and rescue crews to find him early this morning. the car was found at the ranger station. initial reports, he was just wearing a t-shirt, jeans and sneakers. last night reports were around 30 near the top of the mountain. they don't know the reason why he was out there with only a minimal amount of clothing but they say he frequents the area and likes to go on hikes and runs. >> this all began last night around 5:50 p.m. we received a phone call from an individual in distress, saying he had gone for a hike up. he gave us a rough idea where
7:27am
he might have started his hike. he appeared to disoriented. he talked to dispappers and tried to give some explanation as to where he might be. some of the information he gave us was contradicting itself. we weren't sure where to begin our search efforts. >> reporter: now, originally, there was a chp helicopter that was originally supposed to be brought in to help essentially fly him down the mountain. but because of the heavy terrain and there's electrical issues out, they thought it was best to physically go up to the mountain. those 67 volunteers physically brought him down just about 15, 20 minutes ago. it took him about four hours to do so. once again, back out here live, again, mr. kline is safe and he's transported to a nearby hospital in san rafael where he's listed in fair condition. we're live here near mount tamalpais, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you, brian. good news there. we're just hours away from stanford's return to the

7:32am
loan modification. previously, banks could begin the process of going through and possibly approving a loan modification while still going ahead with the foreclosure at the same time. now they cannot do that. two other new laws will give facebook users some new protections. it's now illegal for employers to require an employee's facebook password in order to protect their job. college universities are also prohibited from the same thing. and get ready to start seeing an odd site on some california roadways. driverless cars. a new law paves the way for testing these vehicles on roadless roads. google unveiled these earlier this year. now the cars can be driven on the road as long as a real person is watching over and supervising that test drive in case there is an emergency. with more than 800 new laws on bought, we can't go through

at one party. and the fairmont says new year's eve is one of the busiest nights of the year. they had a ball in new york. got a million people from all over the world in times square. three hours before the ball dropped, there was so many people out there, they couldn't even get close enough to really see the ball. and things were different this year besides all of the kisses. there were no food vendors out, no public toilets around and security was very, very tight. we've posted a slide show of new year's celebrations from all over the world. go to our channel 2 website, ktvu.com. click on the images tab. 7:3. happening -- 7:33. san jose's mayor is visiting police and firefighters as he traditionally does early on new year's day. ktvu channel 2 reporter janine de la vega is live to explain why some officers are not exactly giving the mayor a warm
7:35am
welcome. >> reporter: several officers told me off camera that they thought it was insulting that the mayor wanted to show up at their briefing. we're told when he walked in half a dozen police officers left. they were upset because of the way they think he's treated the department. the mayor thanked them and offered them baked goods. chris moore is retiring at the end of the month in part because of the challenges he faces with the city's budget and staffing as well as low morale among officers. there's been a mass exodus of officers retiring and resigning. 100 have left the department. many are upset over the pension measure. the police officers union is suing the city saying it is illegal. the mayor took the criticism in stride and talked about his outlook for 2013. >> i think things will improve in 20. i think we'll -- 2013. i think we'll rebuild our plan
7:36am
through savings and revenue. we'll have more money. as we have more spending, we need to rebuild the police department. >> reporter: 012 ended with 46 homicide -- 2012 ended with 46 homicides ending. property crime is on the rise. the mayor said the search for a new chief is going smoothly. they expect to have a candidate in the next couple weeks. the mayor is visiting with police and fire dispatchers and plans to visit six fire stations across the city. janine de la vega, ktvu channel 2 news. 7:35. on a lighter note. it's a tie for who had the bay area's first baby of the new year. two babies were born at the stroke of midnight at local hospitals. a baby boy was born at subtle
7:37am
delta at midnight. another baby was born at alta beat summit medical -- alta bate summit medical center. we don't know if it's a boy or a girl. tara is checking on traffic. >> we had an accident pop up between hellard and blossom. this was a rollover crash involving two cars. two lanes were blocked. but the chp just opened them up again. up here in mountain views we have a solo crash. it looks like it's alcohol- related. minor injuries. this accident still has one lane blocked but it should be clear. in 880, traffic is looking good. and at the golden gate bridge, traffic is flowing very nicely into san francisco. here's steve.
7:38am
i want to thank the ladies for tweeting me and letting me know about the sprinkles. i know there were a couple. that system there. the cold air is coming in. the clearing is coming from from behind it. san mateo coast, peninsula and down to santa cruz. came right down out of the north right down the old elevator vast. the systems are stronger in southern california. these systems are cutting off. that's why the system is gonna change. one part of this system will go north, the other part about go south. partly cloudy, chilly, breezy. it will be cold with that north wind in place. mostly sunny, breezy and cool this afternoon. now, temperatures were up for a while. but now the clearing is taking place at least to the north. you can see 31, santa rosa. if it weren't for the breeze, napa could be colder.
7:39am
i've seen lower temperatures than that. a little breeze as well. antioch, 33. low 40s. oakland in there, hayward, redwood city, mountain view and even san jose. a little bit more cloud cover. 7 up in tahoe. 34 sacramento. 27 in ukiah, and a lot of 20s in lake county. tonight will be really cold. the system, it's rotating and accelerating into southern california. it will take the cloud cover with it. mostly sunny today. breezy and cool. there it goes. that cloud cover did produce a few little showers. mostly sunny but there will be a no doubt about it north wind in place and that means chilly and breezy. maybe one of those days when you are in the sun. you hit that breeze and shade. 50s on the temperatures. and not much change. 50 to 55. coolest temperatures inland. warmest temperatures will be closer to the bay an also the coast but really there's not gonna be too much of a difference in these 54 and 55s and they don't last long.
7:40am
the system is leaving behind cool air. for wednesday, already a frost and freeze advisory. it will be cold and sunny. the little system will give us some higher clouds, mid-level clouds on thursday. no biggie. it's out of here for the weekend. i think the next system goes south as well. leaving us high and dry. maybe a little warmer. tori. all eyes will be on the house of representatives this morning. the house set to vote on the senate's fiscal cliff bill passed early this morning. will they give it the green light? and where that blood clot that hospitalized hillary clinton was located and when she may be able to go home.
7:41am
7:42am
7:43am
one of the most anticipated events of new year's day is the tournament of roses parade in pasadena. it's the 124th year of the big parade. about a million people are expected to line the parade route. the them is the places you'll go. some of the people wanting to watch stake their spots as soon as they were allowed to do so. that was yesterday at noon. that means they had to camp out overnight as temperatures dipped into the mid-40s. it's supposed to be sunny day. sanford fans are focused on the rosebowl game. they are a six-point favorite to beat wisconsin. fred ingles is live from los angeles. fred, we know being a favorite, no guarantee of a win, though. >> reporter: no, absolutely not. it will be an upset if, in fact, stanford does not win this ballgame, however. you talked about the temperature, tori. you know, it's lower than mid-
7:44am
40s. i mean, last night it got down to the high 30s here. it was chilly. we are stationed here in los angeles. we're about to go to pasadena about 25 miles away from here. but, yeah, getting back to the team itself, yes, yesterday we were downtown in l.a. they had a rally for the stanford cardinal. no coaches, no players showed up for it. they were hunkered down. they were sequestered, if you will, and they became what you would say into a football mode here because there was so much going on through jute the week for them. but they are now understanding the situation here. they are in the rosebowl for the first time in 13 years. one of the guys that you really have to talk about is kevin hogan, the red shirt freshman quarterback, if you will, kevin hogan. he started four games. he's won all four game since he started. they were all against ranked them, that's including the pac- 12 championship in which he led
7:45am
them over ucla. now, kevin hogan, a guy that nobody really talked about at the beginning of the year, suddenly, he comes in. he's more noble than josh nunez. he electrified the offense. they have a great running back in stephen taylor. they have an all-american tight end in a man called zach urtz who came out of monte vista high school in danville. this is an offense that's become much less predictable with this red shirt freshman, hogan. he's thrown nine touchdowns. he's been intercepted only three times. he's run for a couple of touchdowns in those games. he's the second leading rusher in the stanford/cardinal team just because he's able to do so much so. a lot of people are saying he was the colin kaepernick, a guy that's coming this and turned
7:46am
